Its a good place to eat, good polish cusine and low price. But the resturant itself needs a good clean. Dust everywhere apart from that it was good. Stuff was friendly.

Was looking forward to a good meal and atmosphere at this recommended restaurant. It was very busy and lots of diners were already tucking into their meals, the loud chatter of the other diners echoed loudly which made it difficult to talk to my partner throughout the visit, let alone hear the waitress when ordering. The starter arrived promptly but... More

This place feels like a beer Keller , it gets busy so perhaps go outside peak times. We were seated quickly , service was pretty good too , it's a real meat eaters paradise , we tried the mixed platter , way too much for one person. It's a lovely place with roving musicians , makes for a great start... More

Came to this place at the invitation of a friend. Liked the comfort and kindness of the staff. I think I will be a regular customer. The prices are adequate.

Having only popped in after visiting the nearby Wawel Castle, we were tempted by the many and varied dishes that were being served to the predominantly Polish customers, in the long (heated in winter) conservatory. So glad that we ate there as the service was superb, the food was well presented, well cooked and plentiful with excellent prices. We did... More

Was staying in the adjoining Hotel Royal and rather than brave the minus temperatures popped in here for some food. Bit of a meat feast lovers dream, loads of wholesome meaty dishes on offer, large portions as well. Well priced for what you receive. They could probably do with a few more staff on as the ones that are on... More

Have just been in this restaurant with my colleagues on a business trip. The restaurant is close to the castle. We were 4 and could easily find a place to sit on a weekday night. We had to wait for 20 minutes for the waiter to come, which wasn't nice. I ordered a traditional soup with mushroom, but I don't... More
